About

Welcome! My name is Steve Ammidown, and I’m a second year student in the iSchool at the University of Maryland, College Park in the Archives, Records and Information Management specialization.

My primary interest when it comes to archives is access.  How can we make sure that archival materials are available to the largest audience that might be interested in them? This is not only an issue of processing and digitization.  We must also consider the researcher’s experience with archives, since it can color their entire perception.

To put a less theoretical edge on it- I get excited about the new and interesting stuff I get to work with.  I love sharing that excitement and I want to get other people interested as well.
